Video key points:
  • Machines run by AI are learning at a rate of speed that is unpredictable.
  • Kai-Fu Lee assessed 40% of today’s blue-collar and white-collar jobs -in the world- will be replaced by AI in approximately 15 years
    • Jobs mentioned: drivers, chefs, waiters, bookkeeping; anything where systematic processes are employed, and creativity is not a dominant element of the job.
  • Kai-Fu Lee stated “I believe it’s going to change the world more then anything in the history of mankind. More than electricity.”
  • AI is rapidly developing visual and emotional recognition capabilities the can be used to help people, or to be exploited by restrictive governments.
    • AI still lacks the ability to assess personal intentions
  • AI is being driven by speedy computer chips, access to all world data, and the ability to develop a capacity for "deep learning", without manual programming. 
    • “Deep Learning” can only be achieved when engineers help the machines make recognition adjustments to correct observation gaps or mistakes. Machines are constantly exposed to endless streams of data that it eventually learns what black pants means; what a happy person looks like, or when someone expresses intentions to carry out an act. Once the engineers correct the machine learning gaps; the machine does not forget. The fast-operating chips speed the process of constant exposure.
  • Lee stated the more data collected, the better the AI.
  • People having trouble adapting to revolutionary technical changes need to learn new skills be make a living
  • Technology may outpace a countries ability to create a new workforce that can earn living wages
  • AI monitoring children’s emotions in classrooms and identify students who require assistance
  • Distance learning can become more interactive
Some Initial Considerations:
  • What jobs can you perform that cannot be replaced by AI?
  • What education, skills and abilities should you develop to be competitive in the future job market?
  • What kind of pay can you expect to acquire and how will that allow you to achieve and maintain your personal standard of living?

SNOW BULLY–Better than a Shovel, Easy to Use, Energy Efficient, Cost Effective and Made in the USA

Are you ready for the snow season? I don't know about you, I have a long driveway I hate just pushing snow out with the shovel. I don't have a truck where I can add a snow plow blade to push away the snow. However, I did find something that may be of interest to you… It's called the SNOW BULLY . I just purchased a SNOW BULLY a little over a month ago. It’s made of heavy steel, but very easy to maneuver. I cannot wait to use it. Shoveling can be backbreaking work, it can also be dangerous because of the amount of stress it can put on your heart. The SNOW BULLY is easy to maneuver and push your way through snow. The SNOW BULLY is cost effective; you do not have to hire someone to clear your driveway. Its energy efficient, you do not need gas or fuel, you just push…its totally green in terms of clean energy use. The SNOW Bully does not stress the muscles in your back like shoveling.
